APC, PDP in Another Rage

The All Progressives Congress, APC, said it would not drift from delivering on its promises to Nigerians despite criticism from the country’s opposition and challenges.

The APC Caretaker and Extra-ordinary Convention Planning Committee (CECPC) Secretary, Senator John Akpanudoedehe, was reacting to the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) yesterday in Abuja.

He said the APC was setting the record straight for Nigeria, despite the numerous transgressions and agony the PDP put them through. In the past elections, he said Nigerians has rejected the main opposition party and instead employed the ruling APC.

“The PDP should allow Nigerians to forgive it for the numerous transgressions and agony it put them through many years of misrule, which the national chairman publicly apologized to Nigerians. We would ordinarily have allowed PDP to wallow in its usual illusion, since its descent from power in 2015”.

“The PDP’s ranting reminds us of its ignominious era where crude oil was sold at an average of $100 per barrel for a consecutive period of four years,” he said.

According to Akpanudoedehe, he wondered why the PDP would be misleading because Nigerians wanted him back in government. He noted that the PDP is trying to shift Nigerians’ attention from the achievements of President Mohammadu Buhari.

Meanwhile, the Peoples Democratic Party, PDP in defense, said APC’s false performance claims would not save the ruling party from giving an account of its activities in the office.

The PDP, on its part, described the attack on it by the APC as diversionary tactics to cover the N15 trillion allegedly stolen by leaders of the ruling party from government coffers.

The PDP accused the APC leadership of blackmailing President Muhammadu Buhari by pushing out false performance claims. The PDP, therefore, urged the president to go after officials involved in the reported stealing.

“Our party notes the plots by current APC leadership to blackmail and ridicule President Buhari by pushing out fake performance claims, like those contained in the press statement by its illegal caretaker committee on Tuesday, January 5, which was designed to rubbish Mr. President, highlight his failures and deflect attention from the atrocities of the APC.

“Such fake narratives will not help the APC as our party has details of their nefarious leaders, including APC governors, ministers, certain aides of Mr. President, as well as APC fronts in agencies of government, and would not hesitate to make such public at the fullness of time.

“The APC had become rattled because of pressure from PDP and other well-meaning Nigerians asking President Buhari to go after APC leaders as well as Presidency officials involved in the reported stealing of N9.6 trillion ($25 billion) oil revenue as detailed in the leaked NNPC memo. APC leaders are having sleepless nights because the dragnet would soon catch up with all of them involved in the reported stealing of N1.1 trillion worth of crude using 18 unregistered vessels, looting of over N2 trillion in hazy oil subsidy regime, including a criminal under-recovery for unnamed West African countries as well as illegal tax per liter of petrol running into trillions of naira.”
